The Adopt A Spot is a new program created this year by the Keep Montgomery County Beautiful Task Force. This program allows you to adopt a commonly owned area located within Montgomery County when you agree to make regular litter pick-ups at the site. MCDOT will provide a sign with your group's name on it. Installation of the sign is the responsibility of the participant as is obtaining permission for its installation since usually MCDOT does not have jurisdiction over the location. MCDOT will also provide cleaning equipment, such as trash bags or gloves, to assist volunteers.
Examples of such locations would include:
NOTE: Montgomery County facilities, such as parking garages or lots, or Highway or Transit depots, cannot be adopted for liability and safety reasons. Locations within municipalities or under the jurisdiction of the Maryland State Highway Administration cannot be adopted (municipalities include Rockville City, Gaithersburg City; in addition, the Bethesda Urban Partnership; roads that have a route number are State owned).
This is a list of available equipment to Adopt A Spot participants and the Rockville Core Map shows where the Community Outreach office is located, to pick up equipment.
You can pick up equipment anytime Monday thru Friday between 8:30am - 4:00pm.
